DRUG RELATIONSHIP By Dr. S.M. Bihari
Presenting a unique exhaustive list of relationships of homeopathic remedies, this book helps you find out if your Second Prescription is antedotal or complementary to the simillimum or whether the follow up remedy will aggravate your case or cure it. It is a must-have for all sincere practitioners of the Hahnemannian art. C.B. Knerr has given a relationship of remedies which can be studied under many headings such as Antidotes, collateral, complementary, Inimical, Compatible remedies.
The relationships that this book mentions are-
ANTIDOTES: To the effects of massive and molecular doses; chemical antidotes in poisoning; to the lasting or chronic effects super induced by the drug.
COLLATERAL: Side relations (congeners) belonging to the same or allied botanical family or chemical group.
COMPATIBLE: Drugs following well.
COMPLEMENTARY: Supplying the part of another drug.
INIMICAL: Drugs disagreeing, incompatible, do not follow well.
SIMILAR: Drugs suggested for comparison by reason of their similarity; usually compatible, unless too similar, like Nux vomica and Ignatia
As important as it is to memorise the medicines, the same goes out to the relationship part as it is the most sought after topic for competitive examinations too.
